Kidnapped by insurgents on February 19, 2018, the girls were returned to Yobe after the negotiation initiated by the federal government to ensure safe return of the girls.

After they were freed on Wednesday, they were taken to Abuja where they met with the president.

Officially announcing the return of the girls, President Muhammadu Buhari assured them of their safety and freedom to pursue their dreams.

He spoke about the government’s commitment to ensuring that a similar incident never happened again.
